Garnet Lake Canoe Camping
Sat, Jul 28 • 9:00 AM

Garnet Lake is a small lake in the southern Adirondacks, within sight of Crane Mountain. Part of the lake is developed, but the far end is state-owned and wild. There are good mountain views from the water, and several choice campsites... none of them that difficult to reach.

Let's spend a weekend camping on this scenic waterway. It shouldn't take long to reach one of the campsites, so there will be time for side trips. Shall we hike to nearby Lizard Pond, or maybe bushwhack up Mount Blue?

Come join us!
